Donations to support the helpline

We have to raise ​at least £60,000 every year to run our helpline for male victims of domestic abuse. We receive no taxpayer, government or public money – so are wholly dependent on donations ​to keep it open.

We take over 2,000 calls per year from men (often with children) in distress and support others such as families, friends and workmates of men suffering abuse who call because they want to help them escape.

Donations ​to the helpline support the staffing, the telephone system and promotion of this service.

To help us help men (and their children) escape, please donate whatever you can afford below.

Thank you – it really is appreciated.
